Ray Ginsburg AM was president of the NSW division of the NCJWA between 1964 and 1972. She served as national president from 1979 to 1985 and was made a Life Governor in 1991.

Victoria Nadel, the current president of the NCJWA NSW Division, told J-Wire: “Ray’s contribution to National Council was immeasurable. Her work in support of agunot, her involvement in establishing the NCJW War Memorial Fanny Reading Council House in Woollahra and her networking to fundraise for NCJW services and projects for both the Jewish and non Jewish Community over her lifetime were immeasurable.”
